As a rising star in the salsa circuit, Casa Salsa's founder Christian Espinola has danced across stages around the country—including the New York Salsa Congress and Miami Heat halftime shows. He quickly became a sought-after dance instructor, and is currently a representative for the CW Network's Spanish Heritage Month celebration. At his dance studio, he leads a team of experienced, energetic dance instructors who are passionate about the salsa, bachata, and cha-cha moves they teach. They lead students of all ages and abilities through each dance's footwork and partnering techniques during private and group lessons, workshops, and monthly outings. They also offer monthly memberships, which grant guests access to unlimited group classes and an online dance-training program, which helps them further sharpen their hip-swinging moves at home or at a WiFi café.
At Deer Creek Tennis Resort, athletes observe the arc of descending balls and knock them back toward opponents with a grunt. The facility hosts matches atop 10 Har-Tru courts and two hard courts, where renters engage in recreational play or measure their skills and vocabulary against competitors at men's and women's leagues. During clinics, certified tennis instructors expound a different aspect of the game each week, and private lessons focus on players' individual weaknesses. Through the junior program, they lavish small groups of budding athletes with extra attention and weave training methods used by Association of Tennis Professionals and Women's Tennis Association pros into instructional sessions. Molded around sure strokes, mental toughness, body conditioning, and intelligent match play, the program stands in contrast against yoga and water aerobics classes, which focus solely on fitness and gaining enough muscle to easily charge through an opponent's tennis net.
The verdant brainchild of course architect William Mitchell, Deerfield Country Club's 18-hole course plots a 4,120-yard track through lush groves of palm trees and impeccably maintained turf. An executive layout composed of nine par 3s and nine par 4s, the course offers diverse play in a time-efficient package. New greens and recently refurbished bunkers compete for golf balls' affection, their success determined by dowries offered by paternal flagsticks and sand-trap rakes. Golfers streamline straight-hitting swings and soft, greenside shots at the practice facilities, which include a driving range with practice bunkers and an immense putting green. Leather chairs await weary legs in the clubhouse, where golfers can slake their thirst or clean off sand wedges with a sudsy drink from the bar.
Course at a Glance: * Designed by William Mitchell * 18-hole, par-63 course * Length of 4,120 yards from the farthest tees * Three tee options

After catching his first wave at age 12, Heath Van Bogaert became fascinated with by surfing's science of glide, physics, and propulsion.
